MONTE DA GRAVITA

Open your eyes and look with your heart ...
  • Welcome
  • Welcome

    As proud owners of this beautiful piece of Portugal we (Peter, Marianne, Bas and Niels van den Blink) welcome you to our estate Monte da Gravita where peace, relaxation and inspiration come together in the middle of a picturesque landscape.


    We would like to invite you to enjoy this!


    In the beautiful, varied landscape of the Alentejo, translated from the Moors (Tejo Alem): "the land along the river Tagus", lies the estate Monte da Gravita. No less than 7 hectares of unspoilt nature on the edge of the nature reserve: Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano and Costa Vicentina, where you will find beautiful, quiet beaches in less than 30 minutes (guaranteed without traffic jams!) Of which several are also very suitable for a visit with small children. The somewhat larger place Odemira is at 20 km. away and here you will find nice restaurants, shops and several supermarkets


    Our spacious, detached holiday homes are fully furnished and offer all the privacy and comfort to ensure a relaxing stay. Monte da Gravita has a lovely spacious pool, filled with pure spring water and comfortable loungers on the sun terrace.


    On request we can provide breakfast and we like to have a typical Portuguese meal with Alentejo wines several times a week, with the emphasis on tasting fresh, local products. If desired, there is of course a suitable alternative for the children. In each house there is an extensive information folder with many tips to further discover the culture and beautiful surroundings. We are officially registered as Alojamento Local (AL).


    We look forward to your visit and look forward to introducing you to this still unspoiled piece of Portugal!

    Area

    Driving through the picturesque, undulating landscape of the Alentejo with its cornfields and cork oaks and several small villages, you will immediately notice that the peace seekers among you have made the perfect choice!


    The same serene peace that you find on Monte da Gravita is characteristic of the whole environment The Alentejo is a hilly area between the Tagus and the Algarve and offers a very varied landscape with forests, beaches, livestock, farmland, numerous breeding storks and impressive reservoirs (including the famous Santa Clara reservoir). The Alentejo is the largest province of Portugal (26,000 km2) and also the region with the lowest number of inhabitants per km2. the feeling of solidarity is still strongly fostered here and this is reflected in the music (Fado), the traditions (processions and parades followed by a "baile" = Portuguese dance evening) and the local cuisine.


    Lovely places in the area such as Odemira (20 km), São Luis (10 km) and the slightly busier resort of Vila Nova de Milfontes (20 km) offer something for everyone; shopping, culture, going out and delicious regional dishes at the various restaurants. The possibilities for lazy beach days, long or short walks (Rota Vicentina), cycling, Surfing and horseback riding are abundant and from Odemira you can make wonderful canoe trips on the cleanest river in Europe, the Mira
